STARS helps schools tackle tough issues that threaten the emotional, psychological and academic well-being of students – issues such as substance abuse, violence, bullying, harassment, family conflicts and divorce, loss, grief, and other concerns. Through assemblies, classroom presentations, and group or individual counseling sessions, STARS assists schools in preventing and confronting these difficult challenges.

Founded in 1984, STARS operates in schools and community sites throughout Middle Tennessee via STARS Counselors, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services as well as through Youth Overcoming Drug Abuse (YODA), a licensed alcohol and drug outpatient adolescent treatment program for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.

STARS Kids on the Block puppetry program helps educate kindergarten through sixth grade students about health and social concerns that affect their lives, while promoting an understanding and acceptance of all children and adults regardless of their differences.
